    47. Alesia Hendley, Dante

    Alesia Hendley is a long-time friend of mine with a myriad of work experiences that have come to a head at her new position at Audinate. There's been so much conversation around audio networking lately that I figured it would be excellent to grab Alesia and see if we could talk Dante.

    Bon Voyage, into the new year! I quickly wrap up Season 2 during that weird time between Christmas and New Years where work is allegedly happening but we're all recovering from what the year has brought us (good or bad.)

    46. The Best of the Best Advice, Part 1

    To cap off 2021, I wanted to look at the most popular episodes that had the most to offer. So, in part, you all voted for these with your downloads! But I wanted to create an episode that showcases some bits and pieces of the best of the show so far. With so many amazing guests and such incredible content, this will actually come in two parts -- so keep your eye out!

    On this episode, in order of appearance: Dan Leafblad, Victoria Butash, Michael Lawrence, and Ben Ivey.

    45. Audio Over Ethernet

    The new world of pro audio is steeped in networked audio. In this episode, I go over some basics of AoE and AoIP. What are the differences? Why would we pick this over copper? Should I pick Layer 2 protocols or Layer 3? Tune in to wet your whistle on audio over ethernet.

    44. Jeff Hawley, The Future of Mixing

    On this week's episode, Jeff Hawley, Marketing Director at Allen & Heath USA, joins me again to discuss what the future of mixing technology might look like given all the recent technological pushes. 

    From Jeff:
    "Are we ‘duped by grammar’ in how we speak about Artificial Intelligence? What do we mean by ‘intelligence’ when we apply the term to digital consoles and the ‘internet of things’, etc.? This article from philosopher John Searle comes up in our podcast discussion. "

Amazing Integrators

The interviews with integrators and manufacture reps are great. I am learning so much about where the industry is pointing and heading outside of just my market. Super informative and helpful.

Highly recommended!!
